S&C sure knows how to spoil folks:

Gryffindor Snowy Owl + Whitman Whale #2

Hagrid’s birthday present for Harry Potter’s 11th birthday, to help Harry start at Hogwarts, was Hedwig. Since Liz is pretty much going to Hogwarts (but presumably without the vanishing staircases and headless ghosts) and her birthday just happened, my going-to-the-land-of-Tolkien-Harry-Potter-and-Jane-Austen/belated birthday present is a snowy owl for company. This owl won’t be delivering any mail, but she also won’t be bringing back dead mice. Plus, she has a nice thick Gryffindor scarf to keep her cozy on those cold winter nights. :)

And for good measure, a Whitmaniac for some Orange Bubble company. :)

Herp Derp

An actual herp derp, since Lunchbox is a herp(tile): Not seeing him for a week has made me realize how big Lunchbox has gotten! Okay, two inches is still tiny on a human scale (and on a red-eared slider scale), but I don’t think he’s grown this much over a summer in years. He must like being the star of a blog.

In other news, Lunchbox does not like being out in the rain.

This is my kind of weather.

In Progress Page

I’ve added an In Progress page that I’ll be updating periodically with photos of projects that I’m working on. In Progress photos are also linked to in the “Coming Soon…” widget in the sidebar on the right side of this blog. Of course, projects meant to be surprises will not have photos on the In Progress page.
